PARENTING

The Whisper of an Invisible Star

“Dear Woman, a Mother is the one who removes the thorns from one’s heart with a whisper of Love. She is the feather that floats you from a drowning sea and the bucket of Love with seamless boundaries.

 At the moment you feel guilty for the mistakes you have done, resentful for what you haven’t, angry for what others did to your or sad for what you don’t have, simply lift your head up and walk up to a Mirror. Look at the person in front of you in the eye in that Mirror and say to her –

For the times when you have been a Mother, for the millions of seconds when you have forgotten your needs for that of your child…

…for the days when you cried alone because you showered smiles at your baby,

…for the nights you awoke worried for someone else’s safety,

…for all that you have selflessly thought and done for your entire family,

…for the times when you haven’t cooked what you loved to fit the joy of the rest,

…for the times when your body hurt and you mustered the courage to go on and

…for a trillion of the billion seconds when you lived up to your duty to be a Mother, you deserve a shower of Love, a bucket of Hugs and Mountains of Flowers

…for you must know that you are not about what you sacrifice, what you feel guilty about, what you did not do right

…for you must care for yourself first, love yourself first, stop always putting the family first

…for you must start showing your children what love truly means, not sacrifice but filling your bucket, appreciating yourself, standing up for yourself, being true to who are and need, making powerful requests and drawing powerful boundaries from the irrational, sacrificial expectations others may have from you. 

…for you deserve to be as much a human being as all others, for we must transform what being a woman means and show our children a new future

For today is that day like every other day when you get to Celebrate Who You are – a Mother. For you are the ultimate Angel in someone’s world, for you are the whole and the soul for them, for those little twinkling eyes and hearts you ignite with joy and hope every single day. For if you weren’t here, their world would be Dark and Lonely”.

And for that, just for that, Love Yourself Unconditionally. For you are the Divine, for you are a M-O-M! How lucky that you are, that I am, we are! For not a million dollars can win the innocence we experience every day, in the hearts of the purest, through the smiles of our little Angels. 

There are only 2 entities one can pray to. One is God and other is a Mother. While God teaches us Godliness, a Mom executes it every second”. <3

Is our destiny already written when we are born?

 

Is our destiny already written when we are born? What do you think or feel about it? Isn’t this one of the forever debate between the two polar beliefs?

Is our destiny written from the nail to the wall or is it totally our free will that guides it. Is it in our minds and heads to get it all right or are we rolling inside a bubbled path?

There may or may not be evidence to prove either way and yet we have our strong beliefs that shakes not at any shiver. Is it true that faith can move the unmovable and change the course of destiny???

 
 


Astrology & Destiny

The definition and understanding of astrology has deranged over time partly due to faulty practice and partly due to loss of authentic knowledge. Ancient Vedic / Sidereal Astrologers have stated that astrology is not a restrictive guide. It believes in the influence of planetary energies on one’s body but the soul’s will power supersedes these energies.

 

What does this mean?

This means that the horoscope can mention which situations and events are most likely to show up in a person’s life (a probability calculation) and clearly highlight the areas of life with preceding karmic debt (prarabdh or nikachit karm); but the probable life-path is not guaranteed 100% simply because, if the individual chooses to meditate one’s soul’s power over the planetary energies, it can. This would definitely require ‘shram’ – hard work just like any other milestone to overcome but it is absolutely do-able.


Prarabh or Nikachit Karmas
(‘Karms’) as in accumulated consequences: good or bad are highlighted by several indications in the chart e.g. through the 5th house, through the south node Ketu’s and Saturn’s position, through nakshatras (constellations), etc. 


However,
earning money, health, children, career, etc. are much more changeable – within a person’s range of will power. Hence, an astrologer can predict the likelihood of the number of children one will have much more accurately as vs. the amount of money one will make.

The chart is supposed to be a guide to the soul, not the written destiny. I believe in my astrologer and guru’s words, “Our destiny is seeded in our thoughts.” ~ HB

Jainism & Destiny

Jainism as a religion also validates two areas of life which are heavily and purely karmic – birth and marriage; the rest it says, is within our control and choice. This means that it says – yes, a major chunk of our life events will be brought to us through our karmas: relationships, enemies, health, illness, debts, etc.. whether good or bad. However, with extra-ordinary efforts, through will power and determination we can supersede these circumstances and change our destiny as well as the soul’s destination.

Jainism too has a detailed description of astrology and clearly proves how it works. Yet, it propagates will power and hard work towards building and modifying one’s destiny a lot more than merely being controlled by one’s stars. For this reason it doesn’t reveal or use astrological information with the general masses.

 

 My idea of a Predestined Life

As for me –  I am the person who is ready to steal my goals from the heavens if I have to. I am here to achieve some powerful motives from which no one can stop or deter me. When my eyes are set at a goal, it glitters with winning gold, and until I reach that gold I know that even my breath is committed to be my companion. I have decided my years of life, slated on my soul!
